And we're back!

Welcome to the new home of Things We Make, I'm so glad to have you here. After a brief hiatus following last week's close of the Hallmark Magazine, this is where I'll continue my blog. The format will mostly be the same since I enjoyed how things were going, though you can expect some surprises down the road as I see what works best for me here. I plan to follow this rough schedule:
Mondays- weekend recap with a crafting or food project from my life
Tuesdays- a profile of a printed matter artist or photographer
Wednesday- an original craft project from myself, a crafty friend, or another blog
Thursday- a profile of a jewelry or accessory designer
Friday- Inspired Image (if you missed my first post on this a week or so ago, get excited for Fridays and make sure to check back to see what this means!)

As always, I'd love to hear about craft projects you may be doing, artists you find that you want to share or answer any questions you might have about what I'm up to. I hope that this becomes a place we can inspire each other to do what makes us happy—which for me often means surrounding myself with pretty handmade things and the people who make them. See you tomorrow!

PS. I'm working on getting my archives over here, so the site might look a little different once they get here and things move around a bit.
